This video was contributed by Jamaal Ross as an addendum to our discussion of British colonization and military methods.

We see evidence of this in Alice in Wonderland. This story takes place at the height of the Age of Imperialism. By 1750, the British East India Company under Elihu Yale (of Yale University) placed India under British rule, enslaving many Indians. The 1783 Treaty of Paris saw the end of British colonization in America, but by 1881, the “Scramble for Africa” had divided Africa up into European colonial strongholds, and the British were looking toward China.

This video is a humorous look at the American view of the British military, but it fits nicely into the context of British colonization as a whole. Thanks, Jamaal!
